A woman who is wanted in Virginia escaped from Rocky Mount police this afternoon in handcuffs.

Police say Shahonda Pope was being taken into the Rocky Mount Judicial Center when she ran from officers to a waiting car.

Police say Pope was handcuffed at the time.

Authorities found the getaway vehicle and arrested Demetrice Harrison...but they are still looking for Pope.

She was wanted in Virginia Beach for burglary and theft.

    Any of you interested in a law enforcement job, you all seem to know where the donuts and coffee are.

    "Hey, guys, I'm gonna grab some more donuts and coffee! Be back in a sec." "Alright make sure you get the jelly-filled ones" "Don't forget, I like cream and sugar in my coffee." 30 minutes pass by........ "Gomer, I'll be glad when she gets back with my coffee." "Uh, Barney, she left in that car that squealed tires in front of us about 1/2 hour ago. I guess she had to go to that Krispy Kreme place across town."

    She had on Handcuffs and still got away? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Could the officers not put down the donuts long enough to catch her? Seriously though, how slow could they be to not be able to catch someone wearing handcuffs? The officer(s) should be stripped of their badges and laughed at!!! This is so funny! They should be ashamed of themselves. Did they leave her alone outside for a while or something? I mean, how could she possibly get away with officers right there beside her? There is something strange about this story besides the stupidity of the officers.
